Instructions for the Placements Listings form

The Placement Listings form displays all the placements we have available for participants for the 2023/24 programme. You can filter and view the form as many times as you need to find the 3 placements you are interested in.

Step 1: Filter by location – London or Cambridge. 
Step 2: Filter by stream – STEM, Arts and Humanities, and Social Sciences.
Step 3: Filter by subject area you are interested in.
Step 4: Read about the placements on offer! 
Step 5: Make a note of the placement codes at the start of your chosen placements – you will be asked to provide this on your application form so we know which placements you are interested in. For example (ENGG20)

When reading the placements on offer, make sure to look for:

  • Whether the placement has a defined project or not – some placements will have a specific research project already defined. Other projects will be broad in their description and will give you the opportunity to tailor the project around your interests. The latter is a great opportunity if you have a specific interest or skills you want to develop within the broad subject area. 
  • The placement location – placements take place across London so make sure you can get to the placement from your accommodation before applying for the placement. Accommodation for placements in Cambridge will be provided.
  • The dates of availability – for some placements, the host has already identified the dates when they can provide the placement. Make sure you choose a placement you will be available for.
